When looking for that perfect romantic New England destination, there is a state that should be at the very top of your list: From the Berkshires to the Cape and everywhere in between, the Bay State has a little something for every kind of couple! For the sporty, outdoorsy types, romantic getaways in Massachusetts can include skiing down powder-white slopes or taking a dip in the Atlantic and getting a tan at the beach.
For more cerebral, urban couples that prefer hanging out in an uber-hip cultural hot spot or walking the cobblestone streets of a city that predates the country itself, there are plenty of locations that fit that bill, too. Really, there is no shortage of options for couple’s getaways Massachusetts has to offer! Let’s take a look at 10 worthy choices for lovely weekend getaways from Boston and beyond.
Romantic Getaways in Massachusetts
Mirbeau Inn and Spa

In-room massages can be ordered or a full spa menu is accessible at their nearby sister location, which they will happily transport you to.
There are plenty of great restaurant options on the island, but you likely won’t need to take advantage of them because The Wauwinet’s restaurant, TOPPER’S, is a AAA Five-Diamond Award Winner and regional favorite. It’s hard to find anything more romantic than fine dining with the breathtaking seaside view from TOPPER’S beloved deck. There are a few romance packages to choose from, but a fun couple’s favorite is the Ride & Rose, in which a two-night stay at The Wauwinet is bundled with a rose champagne picnic for two and a bike map that is custom made to reveal the most romantic island locations. Bikes included, of course!
